  1. On-Chip Passive Phase-Locking for High Coherent Power, Mid-IR Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: A10AT007

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) the design of 8 micron-emitting active-photonic-crystal (APC) quantum-cascade (QC) lasers by using passive phase-locking in a monolithic structure in order to achieve multiwatt-range, diffraction-limited powers; and 2) the development of the key fabrication steps for realizing the proposed APC QC laser. Deep-well (DW) QC lasers will be used in the ...

  2. ULTRAFAST DIAGNOSTICS FOR NOVEL ENERGETIC MATERIALS IN ROCKET ENGINE ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF08T010

    The objectives of this Phase-II research effort is focused on transitioning noninvasive diagnostic techniques based on ultrafast lasers for characterizing nanoenergetic materials and their performance in rocket engine environments. Through the use of ultrafast laser imaging and spectroscopy, it is possible to isolate and characterize each physical process from initiation through energy release an ...

  3. Biofuels Production From Nonedible Bio-oils

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: N09T034

    The challenge has been set to meet Navy’s renewable fuel standard using advanced biofuels. Microalgae, along with other future fuel crops, must be aggressively developed now, not later. Recent dramatic demonstrations with algae based biodiesel and biojet show that it is no longer a question of algae being suitable as a natural source of oils that can be refined to produce biofuels. Rather, it is ...

  4. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC FORMING TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT028

    While there are established methods available in determining the fatigue life of critical rotating components, there is still room for improvement for better understanding and prediction of life limiting factors. Improved risk assessment of jet engine disk components would require probabilistic modeling capability of the evolution of microstructural features, residual stresses and material anomali ...

  5. Modeling Spin Test Using Location Specific Material Properties

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC FORMING TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T013

    Jet engine disk components are increasingly subjected to higher operating temperatures. To meet the demands of increasing thrust and higher operating temperatures, a newer generation of nickel based superalloys such as LSHR, Alloy 10, Rene104 and RR1000 are being processed with dual microstructure distributions. Fine grain, high strength, fatigue resistant bore properties are contrasted with co ...
